Blackthorn in bloom.

Always inquisitive, Robin!

Wigeon, their whistling call is quite distinctive.

Male Kestrel, identified by its barred tail feathers.

Carrion Crow. Its loud, harsh, call warning me off!

Arrived on the marsh just as the rain was easing. Always a good time to see and hear the birds. Things are definitely getting busier out there. The mallards are beginning to squabble over the females, the Blackthorn is coming into bloom.
